detail the transaction using a letter of credit and EXIM’s involvement. What would be your “take home receivable” today. Also, what can your commercial bank handling the transaction do, what would be their investment opportunity given the LIBOR quote, what would they receive and when.
This question involves all elements of a trade/investment opportunity, please be sure to involve all of those elements.
